its usefulness in improving the cartilege in knee joint ## Cartisafe contains 250mgs of Calcium and 500mgs of Glucosamine, so it is a supplement and not an actual medication. As such, it is claimed to help with improving joint function, but this has not actually been proven. THis also means the side effects are unknown, since supplements are not studied in the manner that prescription drugs are. Has your doctor prescribed this? ## I had a slight knee pain. I have a very slight pain in my middle finger first knuckles. I have a pain in my neck and below the neck. It is not in one place. Each time it changes from left to right and top to bottom. I thought of taking Cartisafe Forte 500mg. as per my friends advise. Is it good for me ? What do you suggest please ? ...

round pink pill with 223
1 Reply RSS
Got a round peach colored pill with the numbers 223 on it. What is it!? I was told it was a vicodin 10 or hydrocodone. BUT when I googled it, It came up lithium ## Hi Tammy, I'm not sure who told you this was Vicodin, but it has become apparent to me that this is confirmed to be a 300mg Lithium carbonate ER tablet; manufactured by Glenmark. I'm guessing you didn't get these from a real pharmacy? I could honestly never put my trust into the hands of people trying to make a buck on the street... But it's a good thing you took the time to ask about it first, just to be on the safe side. I hope this helps! ...

I did this about three times in a row last week. OOPS. But I'm still here and don't feel any side effects. I will be more careful in the future. Just thought I'd post this. ## i switched my metoprolol by mylan and my lisinopril by mylan to metoprolol by greenstone and my lisinopril by sandoz because it was cheaper but it sent me to the hospital. once arriving at the hospital they took my blood and said that i had a heart attack.. it was scary because i didnt feel right at all after i started takeing the generic forms. now im paying more for mylan but i feel as good as i d... ...

H Pylori Kit Medication
4 Replies RSS
I have gastritis but no h pylori. Is it okay to use Pylori kit even if you do not have H Pylori? ## It is really not recommended, because the H. Pylori kits contains antibiotics to help get rid of the H. Pylori bacteria, so if you use them, without having an active infection, then you run the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria and this could put you at serious risk in the future. It is usually best to treat gastritis with medications that specifically help to reduce the amount of acid in the stomach and allow it to heal. The most commonly used are proton pump inhibitors, you can learn more about them here: They work by shutting down some of the acid pumps in the stomach, so you produce less acid. Personally, I didn't have good luck with these and my doctor had to take ... ...

Doctors Afraid To Prescribe Medicine For People In Need
6 Replies RSS
Anyone know of a Doctor that will listen ,not just tell you what your own body knows?Dallas Tx. ## No, they all had to close shop, all the good ones. Political correctness and the WAR ON DRUGS? The last good doctors were around in the late 90's they are no more available. Doctors just prescribe whatever the gooberment tells them to prescribe, even though it doesn't work. You have to go down south and cross the border into Mexico and just talk to a pharmacist, tell him your ills and he will either sell it to you or send you over to a doctor that will prescribe you what you need then go and get what you want at the pharmacy. You can buy name brand medicines on the cheap. I bought Xanax for a whole year for 100 cash. Not just cheap crap either. It was made by Phizer and it was the ... ...

routinely take 20 mg Lisonipril twice daily for B.P. probs. Today feeling very washed out and weak. Could this symptom be problem of the med? I've been on this med and this dosage for a long time. I probably shouldd have taken my BP , but failed to. Any thoughts? ## works good ## How long have you been taking it? There are two possibilities, the first is that it could be a side effect of the Lisinopril, since it can cause such things and the second could be the your blood pressure may be going too low from taking it. You may want to make sure you are checking your blood pressure on a regular basis and you should also contact your doctor. ...

As to whether or not a vitamin will help, that really depends on whether or not you're deficient in one or more vital nutrients. If you are and that's what's causing you to be tiny, then one could help you. However, if you're not and your genetics just naturally intend you to be this size, then there isn't much you can do to change it. Do you eat a good, healthy, balanced diet? 3 meals a day? Do you get plenty of exercise? ...
